THE VERMILION TEAM

 

James Blinkhorn - Owner and Artist

{Arty Background}

After studying at Tameside College of Art James set his studio in Cheshire. As a result of featuring in a series of successful one-man shows in the local area, James quickly established a formidable reputation in the artistic community as a creative and versatile young talent.

With success came the opportunity to travel the world in his quest to absorb the sights, sounds and atmospheres of his chosen subjects, and this experience has informed James's stunning depictions of New York as well as various European locations .

Judith Mitchell - Framing Consultant

{Arty Background}

Always had a love of anything arty, walls full of comic pages and posters as a child soon turned  into an eclectic collection of art as an adult.

Worked in galleries for eight years before specialising in commercial art and framing as designer for a volume picture making company - John Lewis headed my client list.

It was whilst working in this role that I met James. He called in to ask my advice on framing his own paintings and must have been suitably impressed as we went on to work together publishing his work, opening Vermilion Gallery and now Vermilion Studios. James still maintains regarding framing that he taught me all I know!!

Dancing, exploring new places with my camera in tow (especially France), being on top of a mountain in the Lakes or lost in a Forest. Yeah, happiest up a tree in the woods!

Too many to mention but fave artists are Bouguereau, Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish and Vanni Saltarelli
